Separability of embedded surfaces in 3-manifolds

  • Piotr Przytycki (a1) and Daniel T. Wise (a2)

Abstract

We prove that if $\def \xmlpi #1{}\def \mathsfbi #1{\boldsymbol {\mathsf {#1}}}\let \le =\leqslant \let \leq =\leqslant \let \ge =\geqslant \let \geq =\geqslant \def \Pr {\mathit {Pr}}\def \Fr {\mathit {Fr}}\def \Rey {\mathit {Re}}S$ is a properly embedded $\pi _1$ -injective surface in a compact 3-manifold $M$ , then $\pi _1S$ is separable in $\pi _1M$ .
